MAX Factor Becomes International Only

Say Goodbye to Max Factor, U.S. Customers

“Max Factor, the 100-year-old American makeup brand, will be discontinued by early next year in the United States, where its market share is limited, owner Procter & Gamble (PG.N) said on Thursday.”

It’s interesting to see the move out of the U.S., where so my brands seem to be only available in.  We can expect to see Max Factor make its exit in the U.S. in early 2010.

YSL Yves Saint Laurent Fall 2009 Collection

Yves Saint Laurent Fall 2009 Collection

When color comes to life as you wear it, it spices up your look and enhances your style. Bold harmonies revisit the beauty classics and sensorial pleasures… Yves Saint Laurent make-up is a desire, an accessory, an attitude. It accompanies women in their daily lives, responds to their desires and their play of color. New Autumn Winter Look 2009 / 2010. Aglow with elegance and sensuality, the Yves Saint Laurent woman plays the game by her own rules as she ventures into the night. As dusk falls, she radiates a magnetic charm and an aura of mystery. Her look? A diaphanous complexion, graphic eyes alight with a glimmer of pearl gray, and femme fatale lips sculpted in a purple shade. An icon of femininity.
